    5’8 (172cm)
    130-133lb
    BMI 19.8

    Dress size 2-4
    Pants size 4 (with at least a 30 inch inseam because legs)
    Tops XS-S (itty bitty titty committee)

    When I was 123lb I’d wear size 0 dresses and size 2 pants for a tighter fit, and my size 4 pants had good room. I also have a couple pairs of size 25 designer jeans that I want to wear again :'(

    I don’t think it’s a height thing. I’m 5’9”-5”10” and I am a size 4. I am usually a 0-2 which is where I’m heading.

    5'2
    145 pounds
    Pants/Jeans size 4 or 7 (juniors)
    Shirts size Small or Medium depending on the style and cut. I stay away from button down shirts as I need a large to button them and then they are too long in the sleeves
    Dresses - a lot of different factors.

    I'm 5'10, 150#. My BMI is 21.5. I haven't had my BF% calculated in a while - I'd guess low 20s. I wear a size 6 and size small tops. My clothing size doesn't really change too much though, even with a 20# weight swing. At 155# I was a size 6 in most things (although some of my smaller fitting size 6s became too tight and stayed in my closet). And when I was in the mid 130s (which is my goal weight) I was still a size 6 - occasionally a size 4.

    150+/-
    BMI 24.8
    Pants: 10 or M. Inching towards an 8 on stretchy jeans.
    Shirt: M or L depending on stretch and buttons. Closer to a M now in most things.

    Sweaters and coats I like to get in a L for the extra room and I love big sweaters.

    I typically wear size 6 pants, can fit in to some size 4. Also have a few size 8s that fit, but definately on the baggy side. Shirts are medium or large depending on where I shop.

    It depends a lot on your height and frame, not just weight or body fat.
